Whatever your passion, Ohio Wesleyan can help you explore it. Our Small Living Units (SLUs) are intentional communities of students who share an avid interest, want to explore it more deeply, and desire to educate the campus about it. From environmental and women’s issues to linguistic diversity, there’s a SLU for almost everyone.
To reside in a SLU, you have to be at least a sophomore and participants must reapply annually. Small Living Units are a unique and popular housing option, and they fill up quickly.
There are eight SLUs, and we accept applications from students who want to propose new SLUs each year. The application is available in the fall semester and is due before students leave for winter break. Specific information on the timeline can be found on our Housing Selection page.

LIVING IN A SLU
Living in a Small Living Unit (SLU) is a fulfilling, yet challenging experience. Members are required to dedicate a substantial amount of time and attention to their responsibilities within the SLU community including, but not limited to, participation in weekly house meetings, completion of weekly chores, and planning and implementation of quality programs each semester.
Additionally, members of the SLUs are responsible for the well-being of their community, as their actions not only affect themselves and their roommates, but also their housemates, and residents of SLUs should be positive representatives of both the Ohio Wesleyan University, and the greater SLU community.
For the success of the Small Living Unit residential experience in particular, we require that all students who apply for SLU membership be in good academic standing (Cumulative and Fall Semester GPA of 2.00 or better) and not have had actions taken through Student Conduct.
